LIR training programs

We offer workshops and multiplier training programs on different topics. Depending on the arrangement, the content of the workshops can also be adapted to specific target groups.

Executive Training "Being a healthy and resilience leader"

In this practice-oriented workshop, executives are shown how they can positively impact their employees’ health and ability to work through everyday practical exercises and working in small groups. On the other hand, they learn methods for strengthening resilience so they themselves can stay healthy and in control over the long term.

In addition, the workshop is intended to transfer knowledge about early warning signs of psychosocial overload from stress and symptoms of being overwhelmed, as well as knowledge about mental illness and treatment options. Furthermore, possible courses of action are identified in order to improve interactions with mentally stressed employees.
